General Pruning for Mature Trees

Most pruning sought by Madison areas homeowners is reactive tree pruning, sparked by the appearance of a dead branch or suspicion of disease. While hazard mitigation is certainly a good reason to prune a mature tree, most mature trees benefit from pruning every 3-5 years for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Hazard Mitigation

    We remove dead or dying branches before they fall and damage your property or other plants. Poor branch unions that may go unnoticed by the untrained eye, can lead to branch or stem failure.

  • Corrective Tree Pruning After Storm Damage

    You've weathered the storm but your trees may not have fared as well. We will take care of that obvious problem you've spotted and work to make sure there are no other hidden dangers.

  • Improved Aesthetics

    Think of us as an exterior designer, We will shape your trees to flow with the architecture of your home and landscape.

  • Baseline for Effective Disease Monitoring

    With mature trees its especially helpful to have a thorough pruning done and have all of the deadwood removed. This aides monitoring your trees for any large pockets of dead wood that may show up in the coming years.

Benefits of structural pruning of young trees:

  • Cost effective (typically under $350)

    As trees get larger and stretch their branches over homes and near power lines it becomes very difficult and time consuming to prune out issues that could have been remedied early in life.

  • Improved aesthetics

    Yes, we can make your tree even more beautiful!

  • Improved long-term health

    Pruning young trees allows us to make small cuts and therefore small wounds that will have a large long term impact on heath and structure.

  • Identify trouble areas early

    Left unchecked, certain trees tend to have bad habits. We are able to identify these areas early and fix them.

  • Cheaper to prune out issues now than deal with expensive failures later
